Excerpt from documentary about the advertising business : Footage of filming a McDonald's Christmas commercial. King Moody, in Ronald McDonald costume, talks about the few perks he gets playing that part.

This film shows us possible reasons that Cathy might not be eating breakfast every morning, but ultimately asks that we, the audience, "stop the projector and discuss". There's another film in this series, "Why Not Snack?" which deals with snacking (obviously). I've found that most of the school films that discuss nutrition are sponsored by a dairy organization.
